MY GARDEN

Ahhh spring is coming! I can smell it in the air! I’ve already started weeding and pulling out the last of my cilantro, lettuce, carrots, onions and garlic.

This weekend I plan on adding crushed eggshells *great source of calcium! especially for tomatoes and peppers* and some fertilizer to get the soil ready for my new seedlings, which I also have to start indoors.

Then I’ll have the hubs till the soil *don’t tell him he doesn’t know yet 😁*. I’ll probably have to bribe him with some sort of treat to get him working! MEN!! Geez!

Here are a few pics of my garden from last year. I planted pretty much everything! Corn, tomatoes, eggplant, carrots, sugar snap peas, long beans, okra, bell pepper, habaneros, jalapeΓ±os, pimentos, chives, onions, cilantro, lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower and the list goes on! I grow more than my family can eat and I give bags of fresh veggies to the neighbors πŸ™‚

There’s such a sense of satisfaction when you can grow your own food from seeds! Plus the kids love being a part of the process and watching the plants get bigger everyday. They actually like eating veggies more, now that they play a part in the growth.
